• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

So I found a little place not too far from me that time has seemed to forget. Selection is limited and not everything is a bargain (the Yamazaki 12 is $149) but these 2013 bottlings of the McKenna are a nice deal for sure. That said he also sells Stagg Jr for $50 and ECBP for around $60 and I prefer those so may not stock up.

Bruh, if you can find Stagg Jr. for $10 more than Mckenna, why is there a Mckenna in that pitcure?

Been loving the Four Roses Small Batch Select in that price range, myself.

Looking at that McKenna label it says barreled in 2003 - I’m wondering what others are seeing on bottles. I don't recall what was on my last one but thought it was more recent than that. I haven’t looked into it but with demand up for McKenna is it possible they are bottling barrels older than 10 years? I’m sure a quick search of bourbon forms would answer this ... or that’s just an older bottle of 10.

I’m sure it is just a bottle from 2013 that was on the shelf of this little place in queens that does most of its business off wine, vodka and other hard drinks other than whiskey.

Picked up a bottle of Elijah Craig small batch on the cheap. Coconut and black tea. Very smooth and very interesting.

Maker's Mark Private Select worth the price?
Maybe. I’ve had a few that were amazing and well worth the price. Some were ok, but still worth the price. Some places, like Total Wine, sell them more expensively. What kind of prices are you seeing?

I've tried a couple of the MM Select and enjoyed them. One bottle I'm referring to as my "Victory Bourbon" as I bought it on the first day I didn't work at my previous place. Need to keep some to toast the one year anniversary of that.
